I see lots of you guys on the same boat I was: "If only I was more in shape and could mantain the pace of the first 8-10 minutes the whole race!" Well this is what I'm getting at, I got in shape and still can't do it. Now I believe I get tired in 4 laps ... more »

Yes, my endurance improved substantially. I am in shape now. Just not any faster. I'm not a slow guy, but can't find the way to step it up. I think we focus too much on fitness and very little on skills. I See lots of talk about training but very little ... more »

I have a big problem with chest protectors. They make them neck brace friendly so if you don't wear one half of your back is left unprotected. I just bought a tld and it looks awesome but the protection starts way down the cervicals!!

This is the future for transport, don't know about racing. Horses haven't been the transport of choice for quite a bit and they still race them. I cant wait for the day I can show up at the track on my Tesla minivan.

I dislike both guys so whoever wins I will be happy and angry at the same time.

When he says he has no choice I have the feeling he means being on spring forks when the company is not investing and developing them is not a choice.

I'd prefer 10000 times a top 20 AMA vs top 20 GP's to end the year. Couldn't care lees about nationalism pride and flags. MXdN is interesting only because you get to see the top guys from both sides of the pond race together IMHO Take out the stupid ... more »

As I see it, KTM decided to go stock with H clutch and e start but no CV forks. Honda decided to equip good forks and left optional the rest. To have the best bike availiable either you buy a KTM + CV or a Honda + e-start. The thing is e-start is cool ... more »

Prado and Butron don't need it hahah. They sponsor the privateers: Larrañaga, Valentín, Mataró,.... And also Factory Sherco enduro rider Lorenzo Santolino. Probablly more but can't think of them now.

Red Sand is a training facility near Castellón, Spain. The owner is a bussinesman that also sponsors any spanish rider that wants to race internationally. I don't think the facility is that profitable, so I assume he makes it out of passion.
